Ramsay is said to be “out all the time” despite the UK government enforcing strict guidelines in an attempt to stop the spread of the illness.
The chef lives in Cornwall, where he has three homes, but has reportedly been told off by the coastguard for ignoring the rules.
“We’ve seen him multiple times in several places,” an insider told The Sun. “We had no choice but to give a warning.”
According to the report, Ramsay was told: “Look, everybody knows who you are and this is ridiculous. You are not following the rules. You need to keep your head down and stay indoors.”
A neighbour of the chef’s said: “He’s out all the time. He’ll go to fishmongers and shops to get food for his barbecues. He doesn’t abide by the rules.”
It’s also been claimed that Ramsey has visited his holiday home in Fowey – located 25 miles away from his residence – to visit his daughter, Holly, while the boyfriends of two others have allegedly been regularly dropping in to visit.
These claims come after Ramsay was branded a “hypocrite” for appearing in a cookery video that urged people to “stay at home... to stop this dreadful virus”.
